As your #1 retailer in the St. Louis area for Southern Cascade Organics plant nutrition, including SLF-100, The Indoor Earthworm now wants to introduce to you KHUVA, a patent pending probiotic nutritional supplement for human digestion. This liquid herbal supplement helps with multiple digestive tract issues including heartburn, gas, and bloating.
KHUVA is a sterilized version of SLF-100 which is made from all-natural plant-based enzymes and bacteria. SLF stands for Submerged Liquid Fermentation. The main bacteria in SLF-100 and Khuva are Pseudomanas putida, Virgibacillus Pantothenticus, Bacillus thuringiensis, and Bacillus subtillus. These microbes are added to several species of grasses grown at our farm, as well as plants from extreme environments.
Since a major problem with the American diet is microplastics from our food containers getting into our bodies, KHUVA is sold in amber glass bottles to keep both chemicals and sunlight out. Unlike many probiotics, Khuva does not need to be refrigerated. The recommended dose is one teaspoon mixed in a small glass of water in the morning and in the evening. For chronic issues, you may work up to one tablespoon twice a day.
KHUVA probiotics are a combination of live beneficial bacteria and or yeasts that naturally live in your body. When you get sick, the bad bacteria outnumber the good bacteria and if you have to go on antibiotics, they kill both the good and bad bacteria. Good bacteria help fight off the bad bacteria so you are less likely to get sick. Good bacteria also help your body digest food, create vitamins, breakdown and absorb medications, and help support the cells that line your gut to prevent bad bacteria that you may have consumed from entering your blood.
Probiotic microbes must be able to do the following:
- Be isolated from a human.
- Survive in your intestine after being eaten.
- Have a proven benefit to you.
- Be Safely consumed.
Probiotics are naturally found in several common foods, including fermented sauerkraut or pickles, yogurt, cottage cheese, sourdough bread, buttermilk, tempeh, miso soup, and kimchi. According to Harvard Medical School, there are more than 500 different kinds of probiotic species. It is important to eat a variety of these foods, as each food group has its own nutrients and strains of bacteria.
Probiotic supplements can help your body restore its ratio of good bacteria to bad. A good probiotic supplement for general wellness will contain between 10 and 30 different strains.
Although researchers are still researching how probiotics can help some medical conditions, there are conditions that probiotics can help, including: diarrhea (from antibiotics or C. diff), constipation, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, yeast infections, urinary tract infections, gum disease, lactose intolerance, eczema, upper respiratory infections (ear infections, common cold, sinusitis), or sepsis (especially in infants). If you develop conditions such as diarrhea after taking an antibiotic, taking a probiotic may help.
Because probiotics are naturally occurring in foods, they are generally safe, but care should be taken if you have a medical condition that weakens your immune system, have recently had surgery, or have other serious medical conditions. Risks associated with taking probiotic supplements with these conditions include: developing an infection, developing a resistance to antibiotics, or developing harmful byproducts from the probiotic supplement.
Because we are organic farmers, we understand the importance of what we put into our bodies. After all, food is our medicine. Newton Hayes, President of South Cascade Organics came up with the idea to produce Khuva after curing himself from a debilitating case of Crohn’s disease using a combination of diet and probiotics. When you purchase SLF-100 or KHUVA, you are supporting families, plants, and businesses that promote family first.
